Prepare the pork, trimming off the silver skin and fat, then cut into 2 inch thick filets

Wrap a bacon strip around each filet, overlapping ends by 1 inch

Thread 3-4 filets on each skewer; insert a second skewer for stability. Brush with the chimichurri

Grill skewers, covered, for 4 minutes per side (including bacon sides), basting before each turn. Cook for a total of 16 minutes or until the filets reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
